    So, I am laid up in bed for the next couple of weeks or so. Just watched "I love you Phillip Morris" on Netflix for the first time. That is an 1 1/2 of my life I will never get back. Anyone got any suggestions for good movies or tv series to watch?

    Agreed ... you can download free or very reasonably priced books on Amazon ... you can also down load the reader for free ...there is nothing more mind stimulating than reading

    Get some hot guy to lay in bed with you. That's a great cure for boredom. icon_biggrin.gif

    This is a military hospital? They usually have book carts, and/or will bring a book from the library on request, sometimes periodicals, too. The last VA hospital I was in for 12 days would put a video player in your room (I knew this in advance and brought my own films, then left them as a gift for their library for others to enjoy).

    You mentioned Netflix, so either you're home now or the medical facility has WiFi? You're online now, so that oughta keep you busy. What exactly are your circumstances?

    If you can get CNBC, watch some of the morning investment shows - learn something about investing (a few $) for your future. Best to tivo/tape so you can fast forward thru all the commercials.

    Have to agree with Dexter, True Blood, Game of Thrones and all that. However I most agree with the reading suggestion. There are four books out by Dean Koontz about Odd Thomas that are each great reads. That should take a couple days to read. Of course The Hunger Games series was kinda fun to read too. The Lincoln Lawyer series by Connelly is a great four book series and that ties directly into his Harry Bosch, a LA Cop series. I think there's more than a couple dozen there. And if you like true blood the series, it was based on a 12 book series too. Also plenty of man 2 man romance out there too as well as some autobiographies of jocks that came out. Just a few suggestions while you're on the mend.

    Hope you heal quickly and aren't laid up too long!

    Thank you all. I appreciate all the advice. I am currently in back in my barracks room watching Netflix. they don't have Game of Thrones season 2, anyone know where I can find it?

    and I do read. I read a lot actually. just finished the LOTR series again. read Tao Te Ching, Tao of Pooh, and Te of Piglet again. and the Narnia series and Dark is Rising series. all good and simple series to read (except LOTR of course). was going to pick up some anne mcKaffrey but a lot of her stories seem recycled from her earlier works.

    Game of Thrones Season 2 isn't out yet.

    Do you have Netflix streaming, discs, or both? Have you tried Hulu Plus? It's hard to know what to recommend because I don't know your tastes.

    I think that the PBS series Downton Abbey is like crack. I downloaded season one from Netflix and now I look like a strung-out homeless person from lack of sleep watching all the episodes in one sitting.

    I'm not in front of my Netflix queue right now to see what I've watched. I'll list a few things off the top of my head that I think are on streaming. I think that Hulu Plus as a deal going on right now where you can sign up for two weeks free. You can see if you like it, and if you don't, just quit before the two weeks.

    Action: Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel (no, seriously, they're good), Burn Notice (ok)

    Comedy: Arrested Development (best ever), Archer, Modern Family (Hulu Plus only)

    Drama: LOST (best ever), Law & Order (the early years were good), The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (the original trilogy), Monk (light), Psych (light), White Collar (ok)

    SciFi: Farscape, Battlestar Gallactica (meh), Firefly (afterward watch the movie Serenity), Star Trek (any of them), Heroes (only the first season or two was good), The Walking Dead

    Hope this else. I'm sure I can think of more.
